Biographie

Anat Rosenthal is a Medical Anthropologist whose work explores how the interactions between social and cultural contexts, infectious diseases, and health systems shape individual experiences of illness and the institutional efforts to overcome these diseases. Rosenthal completed her PhD in Anthropology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and was a Fulbright fellow at the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Lady Davis fellow at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and an MHERC fellow at McGill University. She has conducted fieldwork in Israel and Malawi on the social and cultural effects of AIDS, healthcare delivery in resource-limited settings, national and international health policy, and undocumented migration.

Rosenthal’s current research focuses on global health policy and healthcare delivery in resource-limited settings. She is involved in a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation project studying the impact of Polio eradication campaigns on primary healthcare services in developing countries, and has started a new collaborative project focusing on international Polio eradication policy and the recent Polio outbreak in Israel.
